I use a Marmot Helium bag. It's rated to 15 degrees and weighs in at less than 2 lbs. I've been very happy with the bag. If you do go with goose down you need to be careful about keeping it dry.

There are some very nice down bags out now. It will boil down to name, money and the temp requirement.
I have a Mountain Hardware Universe SL 800 down bag good to 10 below and water proof but it was $350 and worth every penny, but no longer made.
Look at some of the ultralight backpacking sites for reviews and comparisons of the new bags.

I too get cold easy. Sleeping bags are never anywhere close to their ratings for me. For that reason I use a -20deg bag in most cases. North Face Snowshoe. Make sure you have a good pad too. That will do a lot for keeping you warm.

Cabelas XPG and REI are some good bags...I've been using a North Face Cat's meows (15F) for about 8 years now and it's a very good bag (synthetic)...any ways, regardless of what bag you buy, get a good pad as well like SDHNTR suggested already...

YOu might want to look at the Montbell's. I have a 0 degree bag that weighs just under three pounds in the stuff sack. The bags also have a stretching property to them, so you can move around in them easliy.
